H2S Alive Course Description:
One of the leading causes of death in the petroleum industry is H2S or hydrogen sulphide gas. It is important and most often mandatory for workers with the potential to come in contact with this gas to be trained on safe practices. This includes how to properly use respirator protective equipment.
The primary focus of H2S Alive is to help workers form safe working practices in and around H2S environments. The course covers the physical properties and health hazards of H2S, how to properly protect yourself, and some basic rescue techniques.
Each student is required to operate a self-contained breathing apparatus and rescue life and drag exercises.
